Provide a workplace free from recognized hazards.

You must provide your employees a workplace free from recognized hazards that are causing, or are likely to cause, serious injury or death.
A hazard is recognized if it is commonly known in the employer's industry, or if there is evidence that the employer knew or should have known of the existence of the hazard, or if it can be established that any reasonable person would have recognized the hazard.
